The seven opera singers who have performed in Opera Australia productions, will take their Rising Stars Tour to Dubbo on Sunday, November 2.
Local talents Billie Palin and Nathan Byron will also be showcasing their creativity at the concert, which will be held at the Dubbo RSL Memorial Club.
Dubbo South Public School administration manager Lindy Blekemore has also organised a choir to perform on the day.
Rising Stars manager Jessica Westcott, who is one of the seven opera singers, hails from Parkes and said after many years living and studying in Sydney she was excited about coming back to the country.
“I’m looking forward to performing in front of a home audience,” Ms Westcott said.
“When I was growing up there were not many places to perform or train. It will be great coming back to the country and helping regional kids.”
Before the performance takes place, the Rising Stars opera singers will conduct workshops for the local choir, as well as Billie and Nathan.
“We’ve been told by Ms Blekemore that the choir are really excited,” Ms Westcott said.
“We’ll be conducting performance-based games and giving them advice on how to work together as an ensemble.”
The concert will feature various acts from the Rising Stars opera singers, including performances from much loved broadway and musical hits, gospel songs and solo acts.
Tickets can be pre-purchased at the Dubbo RSL, or at the door.
An adult ticket costs $30, concession $25 and kids under 12 are free.
The performance will begin at 3pm on Sunday, November 3.
